British trophy hunters are among the most ruthless of the lot. They joke about having a few beers and shooting monkeys. They laugh about shooting cats out of trees. They brag about luring leopards with bait so they can shoot them at point-blank range. They celebrate blasting big holes out of zebras and killing some of the world’s biggest lions, elephants, and rhinos.’’ Ricky Gervais on British trophy hunters

Some of the world’s most extraordinary wildlife has been decimated by persecution and habitat loss. Elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs and rhinos are all fighting for their lives. We could see all of them go extinct within a generation. Letting people kill them because they think it’s entertaining is just insane, especially when you’re talking about wildlife with such a vulnerable status. Trophy hunting has always been senseless cruelty.

Trophy hunting is utterly cruel, utterly unnecessary and utterly disastrous from a conservation perspective. It inflicts pain and suffering on animals for no other reason other than to boast of some ephemeral ‘prowess’. There is no material human need met by it: it is a hobby, pure and simple, and a deeply wrong one at that.

What century are we living in? How can we call ourselves a civilisation if we think murdering animals for a laugh is OK? Trophy hunters are spoilt little brats; haven’t they got enough toys to play with. They’re wiping out wildlife. Soon there will be nothing left for them to kill. How are we going to explain that to future generations? Let’s get it banned.

All trophy hunting needs to stop. It’s just as wrong to kill a reindeer for kicks as it is to kill a rhino. We don’t have the right to murder living creatures for entertainment.

I’m backing this proposal to ban the import of hunting trophies into the U.K. Every year, hippopotamuses, elephants, lions, zebras and other really important species are being killed, sometimes in enclosures where the animals can’t escape to enable trophy hunters to say ‘look – I’ve bagged one of these animals’. It’s a despicable activity. It shouldn’t be allowed. These are endangered species, and one thing that we can do here in the U.K. to help bring this activity to an end is to say, ‘you’re not bringing your hunting trophy back into the UK.

I believe that the pastime of trophy hunting is one of the vilest and cruellest so-called sports that there is. The idea that a person can go out and, for pleasure, shoot and maim a proud wild animal is wholly unacceptable. To then allow the importation of the product of that slaughter is worse.’
— Sir Roger Gale MP

Trophy hunting isn’t just appalling for the beautiful creatures concerned; it also does something terrible to our common humanity.
